- Enter a keyword that describes your topic. When you search the catalog, it is best to keep your search simple to find a book that is relevant. Use quotation marks around phrases: "body image"; "multilingual literacy"; sustainability; "Spanish civil war"
- Search results can be sorted by Relevance, Date, or Popularity
- Use the options on the left side of the results page to limit your search results by topic, author, library, language, date, etc.
- Click on a relevant title and look at the "subjects" field in the record. Subjects describe what a book is about. Click on a subject heading to find more books that have been tagged with the same heading.
- Write down call numbers of relevant books to find them in the book stacks.
- Write down the full numbers because several call numbers start the same way.
- When you get to your book on the shelf, browse the section for more relevant books.
- Your catalog search could lead to more than one call number section.
